Board of Education Update
Posted on 06/16/2020

Good evening CNUSD Families, 

I wanted to bring you an update from our Board of Education Special Meeting this evening with the latest information and direction for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. As a recap, last week the Board provided parameters for the opening of our Year-Round Schools, with direction to start the new school year in a Remote Learning environment. Following, the District and the Corona-Norco Teachers Association (CNTA) worked together to reach an agreement for Board approval.

Tonight, our Board voted 3-2 to approve the current agreement with CNTA, with the additional conditions and direction to develop and implement a planfor full-physical attendance in August. Additionally, the Board consensus expressed a desire to clarify instructional time, to develop specific parameters for special education instruction,and the consideration of multiple learning management systems for remote learning at our year-round schools.

The full-physical return timeline parameters provided by the Board are as follows:

    • Year-Round Schoolsfull-physical return August 3according to their calendar
    • Traditional Schoolsfull-physical return on August 11

Under the direction of the Board, District Administration will continue to establish plans and work with CNTA surrounding a full-physical return in August as outlined above, consistent with any guidelines from the Riverside County Public Health Department. 

Please notethe District is developing an option for a Virtual Learning Environment, as space permits,for families electing not to return to the traditional school settingAt any time, if families choose to return to full physical schooling, students will be welcomed back to his or her home school or school of choice via the intra-district process. 

Thank you again to our families who have shared their input with us in this critical decision-making process. We hope this update will provide you the information necessary for planning and preparation for the 2020 –2021 school year.  We look forward to successfullylaunching the new school year together
